A corner kick is a method of restarting play.

A goal may be scored directly from a corner kick, but only against the opposing team. 

A corner kick is awarded when:


the whole of the ball, having last touched  a player of the defending team, passes over the goal line, either on the ground or in the air, and a goal is not scored in accordance with Law XI.  



·  the ball is placed precisely inside the corner arc at the nearest corner
· opponents remain at least 5 m from the ball until it is in play
· the ball is kicked by a player of the attacking team
· the ball is in play when it is kicked or touched 
· the kicker does not play the ball a second time until it has touched another player



An indirect free kick is taken by the opposing team if:

· the player taking the corner kick plays the ball a second time before it has touched another player. The indirect
free kick is taken from the place where the infringement occurred
· the corner kick is not carried out within 4 seconds from the time the player taking the kick takes possession of
the ball. The indirect free kick is taken from the corner arc.

For any other infringement:

· the corner kick is retaken
